Christie: Rand Paul 'Pork Barrel Spender' During a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Chris Christie and Rand Paul's word of words continues. "I got nothing personal against Senator Paul," Christie said. "If we disagree on certain issues, we disagree. You know, his response seems that he has something personal against me, but that's okay. He can just get in line on that front." "I find it interesting that Sen. Paul is accusing us of having a 'gimme gimme gimme' attitude towards federal spending when, in fact, New Jersey is a donor state. We get 61 cents back for every dollar sent to Washington. Interestingly, Kentucky gets $1.51 on every dollar they send to Washington. So if Sen. Paul wants to start looking at where he's going to cut spending to afford defense, maybe he should start looking at the pork barrel spending he brings home to Kentucky."
